Year after year, the Verizon Data Breach Report highlights the fact that compromised credentials contribute to the majority of security breaches. To prevent use of stolen passwords, organizations typically deploy multi-factor authentication (MFA). But not all MFA options offer the same level of assurance for identity verification. The issue with passwords and weak MFA options are so prevalent that earlier this year the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued a memo with the subject “Moving the U.S. Government Towards Zero Trust Cybersecurity Principles”. The memo specifically requires agencies to use phishing resistant authentication options.
Cisco Duo’s vision is to provide strong authentication and simplify secure access for organizations of all sizes. As an active member of organizations such as Fast IDentity Online (FIDO) Alliance and World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), Duo Security has contributed to creating strong authentication standards which has enabled us to seamlessly support MFA factors such as FIDO2/WebAuthn. And now, we are thrilled to bring our FIDO2-based passwordless authentication solution to all paying customers in the coming months.
